We have renewed, changed and improved a great deal. But one thing has remained the same: the creativity, the dedication and passion of our employees, who show day in day out that the industrial location of Upper Austria is successful all over the world.

Vehicle handover to the municipality of Grieskirchen

Just in time before the onset of winter, we were allowed to hand over a new three-way tipper body to the municipality of Grieskirchen. The vehicle, a Renault Truck C430 was additionally equipped with a HIAB crane X-HiPro 142 E4 and a spreader mount for winter service.

We wish the maintenance team a safe use and a lot of fun with the new vehicle!

Vehicle handover to VA Erzberg GmbH

We recently delivered a highly flexible and all-terrain service truck to VA Erzberg GmbH. The MAN TGS 33.420 6x6 BB is a perfect mobile workshop with a heated box body.

The autonomous service car is equipped with many extras, such as a diesel generator, compressor, steam jet, bottle battery, and a grease gun. An ambient lighting is permanently installed and also a pneumatic extendable light pole is available.

The refuelling system between cab and box body consists of six standing tanks with refuelling hose and can be removed as a complete unit.

We wish the service team a lot of fun and safe use of this high-tech vehicle!

Vehicle handover Holter

The plumbing and heating wholesalers based in Wels strengthens its outstanding logistics and delivery service with a new Gföllner trailer train. The truck body was equipped with a Wingliner system for double-sided loading on the side and a loading dock wall.
The Gföllner trailer with a particularly low construction was designed as a 2-axle box trailer with rear doors.

We wish our customer and partner an accident-free ride and enjoy the new and very successful vehicle!

Mobile compensation system

We recently handed over a mobile compensation system to Siemens Erlangen. The system operates in the USA and serves as grid stabilization and reactive current compensation. A special feature here is the mobile version. With this feature, the end customer has the opportunity to stabilize the network in particularly polluted areas until other measures have been implemented.

The system consists of the vehicles SVC (compensator), throttle and AUX (control and auxiliary services).

Long Night of Research 2018

Is it possible to connect humans, machinse and music in a virtual space?

The Landesmusikschule Peuerbach, the Blasmusikverband and the company Gföllner try to bring music, industry and a virtual world into harmony. An orchestra consisting of musicians, machines and robots will present their own composition.

The machines, which are firmly anchored in the production halls, are virtually complemented on stage and the robot orchestra is managed by the robot. The aim of the production is the musical representation of interactions between man, machine and a virtual reality.

What is real and what is virtual?

We show you our experiments in the field of virtual and augmented reality.

During a tour, we show you different ways in which "Virtual Reality" (VR) and "Augmented Reality" can be used in practice.

For one thing, we try to visualize our products in the best possible way, but also to use these technologies in the design, production and operation of our products.

Can anyone use a loading crane?

The example of a loading crane situation shows how to operate a loading crane by means of VR glasses. On our simulator you can try what it would be like to sit on a crane and load logs.

The unique thing about it is that Virtual Reality (VR) glasses present a very real-looking environment.

This system will be installed in the truck cab in the future. This allows the driver to operate the crane without leaving the cab.

We are looking forward to your coming!

Gföllner is a new HIAB partner

Since March 2016, Gföllner Fahrzeugbau und Containertechnik GmbH has been the new HIAB partner and service center.

We have recently become another important partner of HIAB Austria GmbH in the central region of Upper Austria.

"Due to ist central location, the modern and spacious production halls, and the many years of experience in vehicle construction, Gföllner is an ideal service base,” says Günter Thonhauser, Managing Director of HIAB Austria GmbH.

Gföllner also benefits from the new partnership. We can now offer our customers not only the construction performance of HIAB products, but also the inspection of vehicles, removable devices, and cranes under one roof.

Mr. Thomas Braumandl, vehicle construction manager at Gföllner coordinates the new tasks with Thomas Konrad, area representative of HIAB Austria. For Thomas Gföllner, this cooperation is an important step in further expanding successful vehicle construction with high-quality products.
